BDE (operational data acquisition)

The PDA is a system that registers and also manages personnel, time recording and machine data.

What is production data acquisition (PDA)?

Operational data is data about processes and states that arise in manufacturing companies during the ongoing process of value creation. This includes, for example, machine and employee data in production or environmental data in the production area. Production data acquisition (PDA) records and documents this actual data.

Modern PDA programmes make it possible to map the recorded information in detail in a central information system in order to process and evaluate it. This makes it possible to tap optimisation potential and counteract undesirable developments at an early stage. Shop floor data collection thus offers important feedback possibilities for production planning and production control.

In times of increasingly smaller batch sizes and individual products, huge amounts of data accumulate. In order to be able to act with this data, a certain degree of digitalisation is necessary in production.
Data of all types and origins can contribute valuable information here. This includes machine running times, energy consumption and personnel deployment. Beneficiaries include cost accounting and production control.

Types of operational data

Operating data contain information about the production process and the costs and services incurred during production. They include quantity and time data and provide information on production quality.

Basically, a distinction is made between organisational data and technical-operational data, whereby some data categories overlap per area of application.


BDE comes up in this blog.
